Janelle Lyons, an attorney in the Charlotte office of Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP, was recently admitted into the 2015 class of the Mecklenburg County Bar/Mecklenburg Bar Foundation Leadership Institute (BLI). The BLI program is designed to train and develop attorneys interested in leadership within the Mecklenburg County Bar/Mecklenburg Bar Foundation.

Each BLI class is comprised of 20 attorneys who have been practicing law for at least three years. They are selected through a competitive process. Those selected are active in community organizations and are interested in leadership positions within the Mecklenburg County Bar and Bar Foundation.

The 2015 BLI session begins in January and concludes in May.
